It wasn't long before the new kid from North Carolina had made friends at his new high school in Jersey. Ben is the kind of guy that everybody likes and he's spending a lot of time with Judy Voorst. So what's the problem?
Ben Petrovic has a secret. He's not who everybody thinks he is. He had some problems back home that he had to get away from and Jersey looked like the right place to find out where he stood in the world of wrestling. Somewhere along I-95 Ben Pietrak morphed into Ben Petrovic.
Elation over his success on the mat is tempered by the strain of keeping his secret as well as a difficult relationship with Judy. On top of that, Judy's other suitor seems to know way too much about Ben and isn't afraid to use what he knows.
Ben's legal and romantic difficulties converge with his struggle for wrestling vindication at the state wrestling championships in Atlantic City. How can he end up with everything he wants: integrity, redemption and the girl?
"Though I don't know anything at all about wrestling, I still really enjoyed this book. After just a few pages I felt very invested in the characters, and found myself cheering Ben on each time he took the mat. I felt like this was a wonderful story from a teenage boys point of view, which is definitely outside of my normal reading. Overall I really enjoyed the book... My teenage daughter is reading this now and is also really enjoying it." -- Smashwords review
